Modern & Contempory Dance Arts

Contemporary Jazz & Modern Dance are offered for intermediate and advanced students of the ballet program.

A sufficient knowledge of ballet is a requirement for the classes at ART’s Modern program.

This course is designed to prepare the aspiring dancer for professional work with choreographers, where dance goes beyond the classical forms and structures.

Jazz styles are offered at ART because they are the dance forms of stage musicals, television, and the movies. These are exciting, stimulating, and contemporary forms of dance. Musical theater could not survive without Jazz! Rhythm, dramatic presentation, and articulation of the body and its emotions are enhanced.
